Hongkiat has compiled a collection of beautiful examples of "Bokeh" photography (1, 2):

"The word 'Bokeh' derives from the Japanese for 'blur' or 'haze', and in photography describes the effect found in out-of-focus regions of images. Different lens designs, aperture shapes and sizes, and various depths of field have profound effects on the type and extent of bokeh produced in a photograph. Bokeh happens in the areas of an image beyond the depth of focus; by playing with focus and lens, photographers can create some stunning images."
